Great idea, poorly executed..., 16 July 2011
Author: ChristianDiorScientist from Ontario

I imagine the makers of Funkytown wanted to tell the story of the decline of Quebec in the wake of separatism during the late 1970s in a film that was a cross between American Graffiti and Studio 54. However, what they ended up with was a film that was too long (there was enough plot to feed a television series for an entire season!), had too many story lines, undeveloped stereotypical characters, and was poorly written.

On top of this, the film had numerous serious historical errors that the writer could have checked on wikipedia! The panoramic views of New York and Toronto show skylines that don't match the eras; White parties didn't exist until the mid 1980s; Studio 54 wasn't open until 1977 despite references to it in the movie during 1976; Many songs are played in the wrong years - for example Donna Summer's Bad GIrls is played in 1976; plus there are many things that are pushed into the 70s that are arguably not correct, from AIDS symptoms to New Wave.

Its too bad because at the heart of this mess of a film there is actually a good idea for a Mad Men type television series that follows various characters through late 1970s Quebec.
